A gazelle is any of many antelope species in the genus Gazella or formerly considered to belong to it. The name gazelle comes from the Persian word Ghazal which means “elegant and quick”. Six species are included in two genera, Eudorcas and Nanger, which were formerly considered subgenera. Thegenus Procapra has also been considered asubgenus of Gazella, and its members are also referred to as gazelles, though they are not dealt with in this article.

Gazelles are known as swift animals-–some are able to run at bursts as high as 60 mph (97 km/h), or run at a sustained speed of 30 mph (48 km/h).[1] Gazelles are mostly found in the deserts, grasslands, andsavannas of Africa; but they are also found insouthwest and central Asia and the Indian subcontinent. They tend to live in herds and will eat less coarse, easily digestible plants and leaves.

Gazelles are rather small antelopes, most standing 2–3.5 ft (61–107 cm) high at the shoulder, and are generally fawn-colored.
